Thursday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Elizabeth Warren, Ian Sams, Adam Schiff, and more.

Braying Jenny

“In the District of Columbia a few years back, DC said, ‘We just wanna basically ban carrying guns’ — and good for DC. They said it was gonna bring down gun violence, and they were right. And then an extremist United States Supreme Court said: ‘Nope. We’re not gonna let you do it.’” —Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA)

The BIG Lies

“The buying power of your paycheck is going up.” —Council of Economic Advisers Chairman Jared Bernstein

“The U.S. economy is in solid shape, with real GDP growth supported by strong consumer spending that is itself supported by a strong labor market delivering wage gains, accounting for inflation.” —Jared Bernstein

Belly Laugh of the Day

“The president has a lot to be proud of and a lot to run on. He’s delivered some of the most consequential achievements and economic progress in generations.” —White House Counsel’s Office spokesman Ian Sams

Lack of Self-Awareness Award

“Impeachment is a serious thing. It’s not something that should be a bargaining chip … and it will just bring down this institution even further if this is the road they go down.” —Congressman Adam Schiff (D-CA)

Circling the Wagons

“This is an essentially evidence-free impeachment and it is purely politically motivated by [Kevin] McCarthy and Donald Trump.” —Adam Schiff

“There are no charges against Joe Biden, and they want to impeach the guy. That’s obviously coming from Donald Trump. … If Donald Trump were not demanding impeachment, does anybody think this would be going on?” —Congressman Jamie Raskin (D-MD)

“The purpose of what [Republicans] are doing is a politically motivated, far-right, extreme series of attacks on the president and his family that are not rooted in the truth. And I think that what we can do and what the independent press can do is to hold them accountable for those lies over and over again.” —Ian Sams

“House Democrats will defend President Biden today. We will defend President Biden tomorrow. We will defend President Biden next week. We will defend President Biden next month. We will defend President Biden next year. We will defend President Biden until the very end.” —House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY)

Political Futures

“The American voters will give their verdict on Biden; with Democrats in control of the Senate, he won’t be removed from office. But Republicans are right to remind Americans that Biden isn’t a decent man restoring honor to the Oval Office. He’s a career-long corrupt politician who simply got lucky in his enemies at the right time.” —Ben Shapiro

Media Malfeasance

“Few national networks were able to ignore the unbelievable saga that just concluded in Pennsylvania yesterday morning. For two weeks, schools were closed and American citizens lived in fear as one man tied up hundreds of law enforcement agents. Not surprisingly, however, most of the ‘mainstream news’ networks provided absolutely no context. The networks devoted 114 minutes of airtime to covering Danelo Cavalcante, an escaped murderer. And yet they never once mentioned the fact that Cavalcante is in the country illegally, just like millions of others thanks to Joe Biden’s open borders, thousands of whom are known criminals and national security risks. If one man could cause this much chaos, just imagine what a dozen, a few hundred or even a thousand determined foreign agents could do. But if the media told the American people the truth that would hurt Joe Biden and help Republicans, and they can’t have that.” —Gary Bauer

For the Record

“New York’s migrant problems are the result of policies promised by candidate Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential race and delivered by President Joe Biden in the two years and eight months since January 2021. Railing about a ‘madman’ in Texas will not solve a problem that started in the White House.” —Byron York

And Last…

“We’ve all had relatives like [Joe Biden] when their memory starts to go. We politely shake our heads, give them a hug and look for ways to make sure they don’t hurt themselves. We don’t make them president of the United States and entrust them with the nuclear codes!” —Gary Bauer
